This week's topic is "Russia Today in the Media" led by Professor Karen Evans-Romaine.
We hear about Russia frequently in the US media. But what is Russian media reporting about current issues in Russia? In Ukraine? In the Middle East? About the US presidential elections? About the price of oil and its effects on the Russian economy? And how does news reporting in Russia today differ from news reporting in Russian, but from outside Russia? Come to this informal conversation to learn more about Russia, about the press in and outside Russia today, about Russian reporting on issues important to the US, and about why it matters for us.
Karen Evans-Romaine is professor and chair of the Department of Slavic Languages & Literature, director of the UW-Madison Russian Flagship program, and faculty advisor to Russkii dom, the Russian-language floor in the International Learning Community.
